We have all most likely experienced some type of shoulder pain, and sometimes we can easily identify the source, but at other times there may not seem to be any reason for this mysterious and sudden pain in our shoulder.
Hand and upper extremity orthopaedic surgeons treat the hand and arms and include reconstructive procedures to address replantation; skin, vascular, nerve, tendon, and bone reconstruction; tumors; rehabilitation due to arthritis; stroke effects; cerebral palsy; congenital conditions and work-related disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome.
We use our hands and wrists a lot, as they are in constant motion grasping, reaching, and carrying items. As a result, they are often susceptible to injuries such as sprains and fractures. They can also be prone to overuse conditions such as tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Hands can be affected by normal wear and tear on the joints resulting in arthritis.
The elbow is a complicated hinged joint consisting of three bones: the humerus, ulna, and radius. There is cartilage at the ends of these bones, called articular cartilage, which helps the bones to slide easily against each other. Many conditions of the elbow can be attributed to gradual wear and tear of the joint over time, as well as the overuse of the elbow.
Hip arthroscopy is an advanced medical procedure that utilizes minimally invasive surgical techniques to minimize incisions, potential complications, and recovery time for patients. The specialists at SpecOrtho recommend these methods to treat many common hip problems and disorders, including femoral acetabular impingement, labral tears, loose bodies, and cartilage damage.
Knee injuries often occur when the knee is in use, whether a person is at work, playing a sport, or using the knee in another way. But knee issues can also develop over time when a person isn’t even aware. The most common is the simple wear and tear that occurs when you use your knees in daily life over the years. Conditions, such as arthritis, can also bring about pain.
The Foot and Ankle subspecialty focuses on injuries or conditions affecting the ankle and foot. It also deals with occupational and athletic injuries, trauma, rheumatoid and degenerative arthritis, congenital deformities, neuromuscular diseases, and diabetes.
